First, what is Cut+Dry?
Cut+Dry is a BOH ordering app for restaurants. We're a robust platform that covers all your suppliers, orders, payments, and much more.

Before you start working in Cut+Dry, take a few minutes to set yourself up for success.
1️⃣ Add your account information and set your notification preferences. Make sure to add your phone number for timely notifications and choose the app language (we support English, Spanish, French, and Chinese).

Place an Order is essential to working in Cut+Dry - it brings suppliers, order guides, catalogs, and shopping carts together in one place.
You can manage all suppliers in Cut+Dry. We separate them into two main categories, and you'll see words like integrated supplier throughout the platform.
Integrated suppliers have their systems connected to Cut+Dry. That means you'll be able to shop their entire catalog, and we automatically generate your order guide and send your orders to them in real-time (like an e-commerce shop).
Non-integrated suppliers are not connected to Cut+Dry. You can add your order guides and place orders, and we'll make sure they get it.
This is where you'll find your favorite or frequent products. You're able to create an order guide manually or by uploading an invoice or accessing an order guide created by your sales rep.
🔥 Tip: you can edit your order guide - create categories (fridge, bar, stockroom), move items (most ordered items can be at the top), and add new items from the catalog.
Once you add products to your order, you'll be able to see your shopping cart. You can quickly review the order, add special instructions for your supplier, set the delivery date, select substitutions (if needed), and see recommended items.
The catalog is an e-commerce experience where you'll be able to see and shop all supplier products 24/7.
Categories help you find the specific product types you are looking for. You can also filter products by brands or manufacturers.
You can save your order for later. This means you can start your order in the kitchen and complete it in the office or add items throughout the week.
Any item catalog can be added to your order by simply clicking on the heart icon.
Pay is where you can manage all your invoices and payments. With Cut+Dry, you can centralize all your bills, pay them on time, and keep track of everything in one platform. Once the invoice is in Cut+Dry, you can pay it with 1 click!
You can upload any invoice to Cut+Dry. Simply select the supplier and upload a picture of your invoice. This ensures you have a centralized place with all invoices instead of keeping paper copies at your desk.
You can pay invoices by Credit Card, Debit Card, or Bank Transfer - even if your supplier doesn't accept them. We'll make sure they get the fund in 1-3 business days. You can also enable auto-pay!
And now you know all the important stuff. Keep this page handy as you work in Cut+Dry.
